NYX – Wonder Pencil


I love the NYX Cosmetics Wonder Pencil. This one pencil has so many used – concealing flaws & blemishes, lip liner to prevent bleeding & fading, highlight under the brow – but my favorite is to use it on the inner corner of my eye. This brightens the eyes & can give the illusion that they are bigger.

Recipe: One-Pan Pasta

Since I work two jobs, I am always on the look for quick but delicious meals to create. When I came across Martha Stewart’s ‘One-Pan Pasta‘, I knew this would be a home-run in the kitchen. You basically use  1 pot, put all the ingredients in to cook together and boom — dinner in under 30 minutes.


12 ounces of the pasta of your choice (1 box)

4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth

12 ounces cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half (1.5 cups)

1 onion, sliced to your liking & as much/little as you want

4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced


Italian Seasoning

Extra-virgin olive oil

Salt & Pepper


Step 1:

Fill your pot with 4 cups of the broth of your choice. I used Chicken Broth but you can also cut the broth with water if you would like.

Step 2: 

Add all of your ingredients into the pot. Make sure your noodles are under the water. I added salt, pepper, Italian seasoning & olive oil to the pot. There is no set measurement for these, it’s all about personal preference and to taste. I added about 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.


Step 3:

Place lid on top of the pot  with the temperature at its highest heat and let the water come to a complete boil.

Step 4:

Once at a complete boil, slightly lower the temperature and remove the lid.

*Make sure to turn pasta with tongs every 2-3 minutes throughout the rest of the cooking process. Stirring too much can make the pasta mushy.


The total cook time should be about 10 -15 (until pasta is cooked and most liquid has been absorbed) Just an FYI: the water should be boiling throughout the cooking process.

….here is the finished product!



You can add some red pepper flakes in the beginning to give this dish some heat or finish it off with some grated parm. I added chicken cutlets on the side since they are my husbands favorite.

Let me know if you try this dish :) Enjoy!
